Lasers, Lights, and other Energy Based Therapy

Utilizing heat energy in different forms and wavelengths, we can target exact depths to address specific skin concerns. The strengths of these devices correlate with the amount of down time. Low level lasers have almost no downtime, however more treatments may be required to achieve optimal results. High level lasers have the most amount of downtime, but less sessions are needed to achieve best results.

BBL Hero

What it is: A revolutionary technology that produces light therapy that can significantly reduce the signs of aging and sun damage on the face and body. BBL effectively targets pigmented lesions (brown spots and sun damage) and vascular lesions (broken capillaries, rosacea, and diffuse redness) in the skin. Proven to “spin back the clock” and restore gene expression of aged skin to more closely resemble younger skin with continued treatments.

Who it’s for: People who have unwanted pigmentation and/or vascularity in the skin. Works on most skin types, however more effective with people who have greater contrast between pigment and skin tone.

Where it’s used: Face, neck, chest, arms and legs. Anywhere you have unwanted pigmentation and/or vascularity.

How often: Depending on the amounts of pigment and/or vascularity, 3-4 sessions on average that are spaced 4 weeks apart, then maintenance treatments 2-3 times per year.

What to expect: Typical treatment time is about 30 mins for the face, additional 15-30 mins is added for each body area. Most people are comfortable with the treatments and no topical anesthesia is needed. Warmth is felt during the treatment and is normal to feel after the procedure for an additional 30-60 mins. There is little-moderate downtime associated with this treatment, which may include redness, swelling, and some mild darkening of your discolorations temporarily. You will begin to see results after 1-2 weeks, optimal results after the full series that is recommended by your provider.

BBL HERO is a newer version of BBL. It can target more areas than the traditional BBL, making it more efficient if you have several areas of concern. The higher energy BBL HERO is popular with those seeking body treatments in addition to targeted areas of the face. Both treat similar skin concerns: sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and redness, and more.

If you’re looking into rejuvenating your skin, you may have noticed we also offer IPL laser treatments. IPL stands for intense pulsed light. IPL treatment involves a single beam of light and predates BBL when it comes to the world of photofacials. It’s a focused approach that can treat lesions and pigmentation in the skin.

BBL is considered a type of IPL treatment, but it involves multiple light wavelengths. These light beams penetrate deep into the skin to efficiently address even more skin conditions than ever before.

BBL is suitable for all skin tones. Sciton Joule treatments are customizable, and your provider will work with you on choosing a treatment that will work best with your skin.

The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your specific skin concerns, what you’re hoping to achieve. Treatments are spaced 2-4 weeks apart.

Some skin conditions may require fewer sessions. Your provider will walk you through a treatment plan that will address your concerns in the most efficient way possible. They can also talk with you about maintenance plans for even longer-lasting results.

SDBotox offers BBL treatments in both our Mission Valley and Sabre Springs locations.
